Wire Duct

Wire duct is an enclosed channel used to route and protect electrical wiring in buildings and other structures. Most commonly manufactured from rigid plastic or light-gauge metal, wire duct is usually installed during the installation of electrical equipment. The US National Electric Code (NEC) and other building codes often specify wire duct use, form, and installation requirements.

Generally circular or square in profile, wire duct provides protection against impact, moisture, chemicals, gases/vapors, and other potential hazards. Depending on the size of the wire duct, a number of wires (and/or various sizes and types) can be routed through the conduit. Metal and plastic wire duct are typically cut and bent (or otherwise formed), as needed, on site to meet the requirements of the installation.

Wire duct simplifies construction by reducing the number of wiring runs needed and eliminating loose wires and the clutter associated with individually securing them. Wire duct also makes it easier to remove, replace, or add wires, as wires can be withdrawn or inserted with minimal disruption of the conduit path.
